Hi! Your Belly is Pushing Out, and it sucks, right? You are Not Alone.
A Simple Guide to Cut Back on Your Belly Fat And Achieve a Healthier Body.
Racking up fat is easy peasy, but losing them is hard. And when it’s belly fat you are losing, it gets even harder. Still, stamping out belly fat is a worthy course as extreme belly fat does not only give you a funny look, but also terrible health.
Lawrence Cheskin MD, an associate health professor at John Hopkin’s Univerity, maintains that it is smart to burn belly fat because “it’s, unfortunately, the most dangerous location to store fat.”
Belly fat, also called visceral fat, loops around your abdomen and is most likely to get into your blood circulation, raising your blood fat and sugar levels, and opening you to greater risks of heart disease and diabetes.
Well, belly fat is bad, really bad, but that’s not the news. The news is that completely eroding off belly fat is achievable, albeit with some grit.
Are you ready to fight off the fat and push back on that lump of flesh hanging down your midsection?
Follow these steps.
Exercise, Excercise, Excercise
As banal as this sounds, exercising is an important step to take off your flight if you are serious about yanking off that belly fat. And while you might be working out, but seeing little or no results, exercising is phenomenal to deal with belly fat. You just may have been picking the wrong kind of routines the whole time. Sit-ups and crunches are ineffective in tackling belly fat. To be effective, you want to be taking several reps of planks, side planks, cat pose, twists, and other yoga-inspired exercises.
And when do you start seeing results with exercising? After few weeks of exercising the signs of progress starts to trickle in. However, achieving full results take between several months of consistent exercising to a whole year.
Add More Proteins To Your Diet
Scientific studies reveal that protein diets are the most essential for burning fat, therefore in your quest to stamp out belly fat, protein diets are your best friend. You must have an otaku for protein diets.
Protein diets will help keep down your appetite and calory intake, and so will reduce your fat storage.
Donald Layman, a Ph.D. researcher at the University of Illinois puts it this way “Diets higher in protein [and] moderate in carbs, along with a lifestyle of regular exercise … have an excellent potential to reduce blood lipids [and] maintain lean tissue while burning fat for fuel without dieters being sidetracked with constant hunger.”
Observational studies have also shown that people with high protein intake tend to have less abdominal fat compared to people who don’t. Protein sources such as meat, fish, eggs, beans are your best bets on this quest.
Drink More Water
Taking water feels a lot good when you are thirsty, but the last thing you want to do when you feel full is gulping more water. However, experts recommend taking 8 full glasses of water daily to regulate your metabolic rate and by extension, keep the wheels of your fat-burning mechanism rolling.
This will help your exercising yield better results and make your food intake more effective.
Several pieces of research have shown that people who take more water before eating tend to have less body fat than people who do not, they also exhibit more energy expenditure, and so burn more fat. No better way to feel full without eating than with water.
Also, taking water helps to flush out waste from the body. Conversely, dehydration keeps stool lumpy and strong, making stooling herculean, but more water loosens and softens the stool.
You Aren’t Eating Enough
You’d think that passing on your lunch would mean cutting back on the fat and trimming your stomach faster. However, you are going to achieve the opposite. When you stay for long without food, you send your body into starvation mode, and it begins to store everything you have eaten as fat. And instead of cutting down the fat, you’d end up stacking up the chub.
So what do you want to do to limit your fat storage? You want to eat as often as possible. Experts recommend small chunks of meal every three hours. That way, you’d be setting your body to a calorie-burning mode all day long.
Get Adequate Sleep
You need a minimum of 6-8hours of sleep per day. When you are not getting this, you disturb your natural body rhythm. And your body may jerk off and start oversecreting some hormones, which may ultimately wind up in more fat. When you get enough sleep, you keep your tummy and your body on fleek. So add more zzz to your daily routine if you are keen on yanking off that belly fat.
Belly fat has been linked to a number of diseases, therefore stamping out belly fat is a necessity. But this would involve many changes to your lifestyle. Hence following the ideas laid out in this piece is surely the way to go.
